Stop Jumping of input screen when selecting enter button to move from field to field

Hello everyone,

I have a web form that is jumping each time the user moves from textbox fields and drop down fields when data is entered using the Enter Key.  

Someone gave me this code to stop the jumping, but I do not know where to place the coding to completely stop the jumping in the web form.

The coding:  onkeydown="javascript:if(window.event.keyCode == 13) window.event.keyCode = 9;">

I need this coding above to apply to the entire web form.  Do I need to enter this coding on every field in the HTML coding screen?

You can put the code in one function and then associate that function with keypress of each textbox. What do you mean by jumping by the way?

CodeCruiser,

I have set each textbox TextChanged event to check if the textbox >= Nothing Then
set the focus to the next textbox or drop downlist.

For example on the textbox DriverLicense_ID, I have this vb coding in the textchanged
event.  

        Protected Sub PK_DriverLicenseID_vch_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles PK_DriverLicenseID_vch.TextChanged

        If PK_DriverLicenseID_vch.Text >= Nothing Then
            DDLState.Focus()
        End If
    End Sub

This takes the cursor to DDLState drop down list when the enter button is selected.

For example on the dropdownlist field, DDLState I have this vb coding in the SelectedIndexchanged event.

Protected Sub DDLState_SelectedIndexChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DDLState.SelectedIndexChanged
        If DDLState.SelectedIndex >= Nothing Then
            DDLFK_IntelligenceType_vch.Focus()
        End If
    End Sub




The screen movement or jump is occuring when the enter button is selected.  Maybe my coding  above is doing this.  The textbox has the property set for autopostback as "true" on every field.  If I set the autopostback to false, the cursor does not go to the next field which in this case is the drop down list DDLState.  I want the cursor to go to the next field after enter is selected.
